Sorbonne University will recruit junior and senior researchers on short- to medium-term contracts starting in 2013. This recruitment is for the interdisciplinary research projects that are funded through the national “Investing for the Future” program.
MATISSE brings together chemists, physicists, Earth scientists as well as cultural heritage specialists. The LABEX research project will offer PhD and post-doctoral grants in various challenging research fields related to natural as well as synthetic materials: Biomineralization; Multifunctional Materials for Environmental applications; Multi-scale modeling of surface and transport properties in complex materials; Effects of dimensionality and confinement on materials properties ; Materials under extreme conditions.
The candidates must hold a master’s degree or a PhD in materials chemistry, materials physics or Earth materials.
The Plas@Par LABEX project will federate plasma specialists from different sectors - physics and astrophysics, mathematics, computer science, engineering – located in the Ile-de-France region. Its goals are to develop numerical simulations of plasmas encourage breakthroughs, for example, in next-generation numerical codes and experimental diagnostics. Plas@Par will offer grants in 2013 for doctoral candidates and post-docs, as well as grants for a second-year master’s specialization.
CalSimLab, the Institute for Scientific Computing and Simulation’s LABEX project, will enable scientists from chemistry, physics, biology, bioinformatics and microbiology interact with applied mathematicians and specialists in computer, mechanical and engineering sciences. This LABEX will offer doctoral and post-doctoral grants in math/chemistry, bioinformatics, biology/computing, scientific visualization.
TRANSIMMUNOM, a LABEX group of three academic laboratories and three biotech laboratories, brings together a unique set of expertise in medicine, immunology, molecular biology, mathematics, and computer sciences to research inflammatory and autoimmune phenotypes. The project will offer a doctoral and a post-doctoral grant, and will have an opening for a bioinformatics specialist.
Bio-Psy aims to train psychiatrists to experimental approaches in neurobiology and to attract neurobiology students and post-doctoral fellows with a strong interest for research in psychiatry. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to train with high profile neurobiologists and interact with experts in the field of psychiatry. Projects will be translational in nature and will focus on understanding the biological mechanisms of psychiatric diseases in order to improve diagnosis and to develop new treatments.
Complete information on this positions and how to apply will be posted in early autumn 2012.
